They are the world's fittest people. But even Olympic athletes have had their share of difficult, heart-breaking or embarrassing (令人难堪的) moments.
1904 Olympics, St Louis, USA
American Fred Lorz crossed the finish line of the Olympic marathon (马拉松赛跑) with a time of 3 hours and 13 minutes. He had beaten the second runner by 15 minutes. Lorz looked happy and fresh, and smiled for the photographers. Just before they gave him the gold medal, the race officials arrived and took away the medal, and Lorz was banned (禁止) from races for a year. Then an official told the truth. He had travelled by car for 11 miles of the marathon!
1908 Olympics, London, England
The Italian Dorando Pietri was one of the unluckiest marathon runners. When he arrived in the stadium, he was very tired. The people were cheering, but Pietri couldn't continue. He fell down and got up again four times. Finally, around seven metres from the finish line, he fell down again and didn't move. Worried officials ran over and picked him up. He crossed the finish line and won the gold medal. But a few hours later the Olympic officials had to take it away from him again. They said he couldn't be the winner because Olympic officials had helped him cross the line.
2000 Olympics, Sydney, Australia
Eric Moussambani of Equatorial Guinea became one of the most loved athletes of the 2000 games. His race was the 100-metre freestyle swim. He jumped into the pool and started swimming. After the first 50 metres he was very tired. He went more and more slowly and almost stopped in the middle of the pool. The officials worried that he was drowning (淹死). But Moussambani continued and finished the race with a time of 1 minute and 52 seconds, the slowest in the history of the Olympics. Still, Moussambani was happy. He had never swum in a pool of that size before.
21. Why was Lorz's gold medal taken away at the 1904 Olympics?

The Château de Versailles is about 20 kms southwest of Paris. When the castle was built, Versailles was a small village. Today, however, it is a famous area in Paris.

This beautiful castle is made up of two buildings: the Petit Château built around 1560 for Anne de Montmorency, and the Grand Château which was destroyed during the French Revolution and rebuilt in the 1870s.

I recently traveled with my family to Itacare, Brazil. Itacare is a small town in the state of Bahia, which is known for its beautiful beaches. While there, I met a man named Alvimar Valadares. He walks more than 12 miles a day without wearing shoes, looking for sea turtles on the beaches and picking up plastic.
There are few sea turtles left alive now in Brazil and around the world. Valadares, who prefers to be called “Capixaba,” wants to help save them. A local hotel sponsors (赞助) his work.
Several years ago, the hotel manager noticed a group of people watching in respectful silence as Capixaba saved three baby sea turtles. The hotel manager realized that these turtles were great ambassadors (大使). They draw people's attention and make them want to learn about and protect the local environment.
Capixaba has worked in the hotel's Tartaruga Program for the past 15 years. (Tartaruga means turtle in Portuguese.)
In addition to watching and checking sea turtles, Capixaba meets with local schoolchildren and fishermen to teach them how to protect the turtles and the environment. The more that people know, Capixaba said, the more they can help protect the turtles and the environment. For example, since sea turtle hatchlings (幼崽) follow the reflection (反射) of the water to get to the ocean, it's important for local houses and hotels to keep their lights dim (暗淡的) at night. That way, the hatchlings will know which way to go.
“I really like to work with and teach kids,” Capixaba said. “They're the ones who are going to change this and help the turtles.” Then he let me hold one of the turtle eggs!
29. Why does Valadares walk along the coast?
A. To stop tourists catching sea turtles. B. To record sea turtles' population.
C. To raise sea turtles for a hotel. D. To help save sea turtles.
30. What did the hotel manager think of sea turtles?
A. They needed to be protected. B. They could bring Bahia business.
C. They attracted visitors to the hotel. D. They helped people learn about Brazil.
31. What’s the purpose of the example in Paragraph 5?.
A. To show what sea turtles do at night.
B. To show how serious light pollution is.
C. To show when sea turtle hatchlings get to the ocean..
D. To show why it is important to help people learn the knowledge of sea turtles.
On December 24, 1971, 17-year-old Juliane Köepcke got on a plane with her mother in Lima, Peru, to fly to another city to meet her father.
Over the Amazon jungle (丛林), the rain fell heavily and there was a strong wind. And then lightning hit the plane at 3,000 metres, and it crashed (坠毁). Juliane fell quickly through the air in her seat and hit the trees hard. For three hours, she was senseless. When she woke up, her right arm was cut, her shoulder hurt badly and she couldn't see out of one eye. She was alone. But she was alive!
Juliane's father was a biologist (生物学家) and when she was small, he taught her how to survive in the jungle. She found a small river and walked slowly along it. “If I follow the river,” she thought, “I'll find people.” The river also gave her clean water to drink. It was very hot, but the river water kept her cool. Sometimes she had to swim in the river because it was too deep to walk in. There was fruit on some trees but she didn't eat it — she knew it was too dangerous. Juliane walked for ten days. Ten days after the crash, she found a small house by the river. There were some woodcutters in the house. They cleaned her cuts carefully and the next day, they carried her down the river, and a plane took her safely back to the city of Pucallpa.
Juliane was the only person who survived the plane crash. The other 91 people, including her mother, all died.
The film director, Werner Herzog, had a ticket to travel on the plane but missed it. Thirty years later, he made a film called Wings of Hope about Juliane and her incredible story.

A. She was in Lima. B. She was in the river.
C. She was badly hurt. D. She was unable to move.
33. What did Juliane do to survive in the jungle?
A. She lived on fruit. B. She drunk river water.
C. She avoided deep water. D. She cleaned her cuts carefully.

A. Boring. B. Funny. C. Heartbreaking. D. Unbelievable.
35. Which of the following words can best describe Juliane?
A. Brave and lucky. B. Active and lovely.
C. Smart and creative. D. Caring and careful.
You don't need to travel far away to write a travel diary. Your writing can start with a family vacation or a weekend get away. All you need is a destination or a place of departure（出发）!

Maybe you expected the local food to be bad and it turned out to be delicious. 37 . Maybe you thought you would not be comfortable with the climate while you adapted to it. Whatever, try to write it down before you arrive. It will be interesting to compare these predictions to what you have actually experienced.
38 . It is always easier to remember things when they are fresh in your brain,but it may be diluted（淡化）with time going by. So try to write as much as you can during traveling every day if you can. Your journals don't have to be long, but letting them express your feelings is the most important or exciting.
Add pictures to your journal. 39 . Combining pictures with your first-hand accounts of what they represent, or what happened when they were taken, will make for（有助于）a better travel journal.

Dear Mr. Smith,
I am Li Hua, chairman of the Students’ Union of Xiamen High School. In order to make more students interested in English learning, we organize an English song competition, which will be held in the school hall on Saturday, Nov. 17th .
Here I am writing to invite you to be a judge at our English Song competition. It will start at 3:00 p.m. and last about two hours. Students from sixteen classes have got well prepared for this competition.
We hope you will accept our invitation if it is convenient for you. If you need to know any more about this competition, please contact me freely. Here is my email address email@example.com.
It would be highly appreciated if you could come. I’m looking forward to your reply.
W: Did you see that, Jimmy? A red airplane just flew right over our house!
M: Oh, no! I missed it! I was looking at our neighbor’s big black dog outside the window.
W: David, could you tell me something about your trip to Europe.
M: Sure. We spent four days in Scotland, five days in Sweden, and finally one week in Spain.
W: That’s really wonderful.
M: How do you like your new house?
W: It’s comfortable inside and it is far from the city center. But the sound of the bar next to my house is really annoying.
M: I can’t decide whether to buy a new car or try to find a second-hand one.
W: If you buy a new one, you’ll probably save money in the long run.
M: Thank you so much for the hot coffee. Would you give me a blanket?
W: OK, here you are. I hope you can enjoy the rest of the flight, sir.
M: Disneyland, Disneyland… I can’t remember ever being so excited about anything.
W: Honestly, every time we’re in a car going somewhere, you say that you can’t remember ever being so excited about going there.
M: But this time I really mean it. The games, the food, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck! I’m going to see Donald Duck! How exciting!
W: Is that what you’re looking forward to the most?
M: Totally! You’re going to have to take my photo with him, OK?
W: But it’s just a guy in a suit…
W: Let’s work out the schedule for your stay here, Mr. Smith.
M: All right. I will stay here for three days, and will fly back to New York the day after tomorrow.
W: So we’ll get down to business today. We are going to visit the factory this morning, and you could have a look at our product. We’ll discuss our agreement tomorrow.
M: Yes, certainly. Hopefully we’ll come to a deal.
W: That’ll be great. The day after tomorrow I’ll take you on a tour of the city in the morning so you could do some shopping.
M: That’s fine. And I’ll leave in the afternoon.
M: I’d like a large cup of coffee and an egg-and-cheese sandwich, please.
W: Sure. Would you like us to toast your sandwich, or is it fine the way it is?
M: Toasted, please. And could you tell me what your Wi-Fi password is?
W: It’s CoffeeBeans123, but we have been having trouble with our Internet, so that might not work.
M: Oh, OK… Wait a minute… This coffee is cold. And my sandwich isn’t toasted.
W: I’m sorry, sir. This is my first day on the job. I don’t know how to work the oven.
M: Well, why don’t you just put it in the microwave, then? And could you tell me where the sugar and milk is?
W: I’m sorry, sir. The sugar is in the corner, but we ran out of milk earlier this morning.
M: You know what? Never mind. I’ll just go to Starbucks.
M: Hi. Do come in. There are two apartments. The one for rent is upstairs.
W: Thank you. I like the carpet.
M: The colors are nice, aren’t they? This apartment is kept clean and tidy. Here is your living room. You can see there are some lovely pictures on the wall.
W: Good. Where would we eat?
M: You can use your kitchen. Come and see.
W: The kitchen is quite bright but it’s very small.
M: Yes, but it’s easy to clean and it has almost everything except for a dishwasher. Let me show you the two bedrooms. This is the smaller one.
W: It’s a good size, though. Is all the furniture included?
M: Only what is fixed. You will have to provide tables, chairs, and beds.
W: That’s a lot.
M: Come into the other room. You can see the bathroom, too.
W: Yes, it’s very nice, but I will have to ask my friend first and we will come together.
